Surety Bonds: Minimize Risks & Provide Protection
Simply put, surety law is the promise by one party to step in and assume responsibility for the financial obligations of another party if that person or company fails to meet their obligations.
Typically, a surety bond is a written promise from a guarantor to pay an obligee a set amount of money if the principal fails to meet their defined obligation. That obligation is usually the promise of the principal to fulfill a contract.
A surety bond involves three parties:
- The principal: This is the person or company that purchases a bond and agrees to perform the work in a well-defined and financially responsible manner.
- The obligee: This is the company, person or agency that requires the principal to purchase the bond for a service to be performed.
- The surety: This is an agency that is guaranteeing the work of the principal and is assuming the liability for any claims against the principal up to the full amount of the bond, subject to specified terms, conditions, and law.
